“We were very pleased with the effective and competent work provided by Ms. Isaac-Menard…Her work was thorough and efficient with appropriately developed work products and a final report which succinctly and clearly addressed the questions and needs of the College. She was quick to grasp the College’s needs and dealt effectively and professionally with potential vendors during the project. She clearly has mastery of the technical material relating to the project.”
"Rachel has performed exceptionally well, bringing new insights into service provision and fulfilling all requirements of the role with minimal supervision. Rachel works well with other members of library staff. She has built up good working relationships with academic staff and has a pleasing manner with students. She has been proactive in offering services and has excelled in user education sessions."
“In every aspect of her responsibilities Rachel was conscientious, thorough and professional...Rachel was invaluable in assisting with reference queries…Her excellent inter-personal and communication skills made her a natural for these public service responsibilities. Rachel Isaac-Menard will be an asset to any institution which hires her.”
"Rachel has superior communication skills, is confident and articulate and interacted with staff and students with openness, friendliness and solid professionalism. Ryerson University has a diverse student body and she was able to put even the most challenging library patron at ease."
